Hearts : To celebrate Valentines day… 

Hearts represent compassion and understanding and are a visceral symbol of love

Hearts also signify being held in the memory of those who love you and communicates their understanding. 

I don’t tend to use hearts in my textile work , but here’s some that have inspired me.
